By Farah Master HONG KONG (Reuters) - Macau Legend,, which owns and operates a casino resort in Macau, said its chief executive resigned on Monday after he was arrested and detained by police in the world's biggest gambling hub, sending shares down 19% to a record low. CEO Chan Weng Lin's arrest comes as authorities have stepped up a crackdown on illicit capital outflows from the Chinese mainland, where all forms of gambling are illegal, and after the high-profile arrest of Suncity boss Alvin Chau in November. Macau Legend said in a statement to the Hong Kong stock exchange that Chan resigned "to avoid distraction" to the company and for the interest of shareholders. It said it did not expect any adverse impact on its daily operations. Chan owns about a third of Macau Legend, which runs three casinos under a service agreement with SJM Holdings (OTC:SJMHF) and owns the Fishermans Wharf, an entertainment complex near the Macau ferry terminal. He is also chairman of Tak Chun Group, Macau's second-biggest operator of junkets - cross-border trips to Macau's casinos for high-spending gamblers - after Suncity. Tak Chun did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Reuters was unable to reach Chan. Police also arrested one other man on charges of illegal gambling and money laundering. Analysts say the arrests herald a new era of zero tolerance of the promotion of gambling in China, in which the government supports development of the "mass market" segment, not high rollers. Junket operators have traditionally offered easy credit to mainland Chinese VIPs, who play in Beijing-ruled Macau's casinos and handle their debts using underground financing channels. Now nearly non-existent, the opaque VIP industry made up more than two-thirds of Macau's gambling revenue until just a few years ago. Police said the latest arrests were linked to the Suncity case in November as the two groups - Suncity and Tak Chun -worked together, engaging in "illicit and criminal activities". Suncity and Tak Chun have been the top two junket firms in Macau, employing thousands, but data from Macau's gambling regulator shows the number of licensed junkets has shrunk 46% over the past 12 months. Shares in Macau Legend closed down 19% to a record low and fell as much as 29.8% to HK$0.40 during trading. Macau Legend says CEO resigns after arrest, shares plummet to record low Add a Comment

Thursday, August 26, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 8.00 0.02% 35,368 S&P 500 -4.25 0.09% 4,489 Nasdaq -30.50 0.20% 15,334 Another day, and another record high for the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite on Wednesday, but overnight futures paint a mixed picture amid a retreat in technology shares and caution ahead of a Federal Reserve gathering that may provide more clues about its approach to paring stimulus. With few negative catalysts to dampen the risk-on sentiment, all three major U.S. indexes crept modestly higher on Tuesday. The S&P 500 was able to notch its 51st record close of the year and the Nasdaq its 30th record closing highs for 2021. With the gains, the SPX and Nasdaq have now both risen 5-straight days (the Dow is on a 4-day win streak) – but volume on U.S. exchanges was just 8.29 billion shares, making it one of the slowest trading days of the year. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index rose 17 points to 27,742, the Shanghai Index fell -38 points to hold just above the 3,500 level and the Hang Seng Index fell -278 points to 25,415. In Europe, the German DAX is down over -100 points to 15,755, while the FTSE 100 fell about -30 points to 7,120. On the calendar today, U.S. Q2 GDP is expected to be revised up to a 6.7% clip versus the disappointing 6.5% pace from the Advance report and weekly jobless claims are expected to be 350K, but focus still remains on tomorrow’s Jackson Hole speech from Fed Chair Powell for clues on the timing of a tapering of monetary stimulus. U.S. Treasury yields rose overnight, with that on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note hitting 1.359% for the first time since Aug. 13. There were a handful of earnings results in the software space moving tech as well with ADSK, SNOW,CRM, SPLK, ESTC all out with results, while in retail, WSM rises on its results.

Stocks finished Wednesday with slim gains ahead of today’s ADP private payrolls and jobless claims and tomorrow’s nonfarm payrolls. Investors have been closely watching for signs of inflation and indications on whether the Fed could put the brakes on the rebounding U.S. economy sooner than anticipated. Politico is reporting this morning that President Biden wants $1 trillion in new spending in the infrastructure bill. Energy stocks were market leaders on Wednesday, led higher as oil prices advanced on improving demand expectations as the economy strengthens and as the dollar weakens. The benchmark S&P 500 is up about 12% this year, and within about 1% of its record high, as investors anticipate an economic rebound from the coronavirus pandemic. The big story this week remains the strength in a group of stocks favored by retail investors on forums such as Reddit’s WallStreetBets, led this week by surges in AMC Theatres ($AMC), Bed Bath & Beyond ($BBBY), and Blackberry ($BB), following the early year surge in GameStop ($GME) which has not given up its gains.
